Norwich City get �250,000 fee for Angus Gunn

Norwich City will receive only a quarter of the fee they reportedly wanted from Manchester City for goalkeeping starlet Angus Gunn, a tribunal has decided.

Roberto Mancini's Premier League millionaires – who beat the Canaries 5-1 at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday – have been ordered to pay �250,000 for the services of the ex-Norwich 16-year-old England youth stopper and son of Norwich legend Bryan Gunn.

But that is some way short of the �1m Norwich were believed to be asking from Manchester City – a wrangle that required an independent panel to resolve.

Young Gunn joined the Etihad set-up in the summer and has already made his debut for the Blues' Under-18 side.

Norwich will at least get add-ons for their home-grown Academy product, dependent on Gunn becoming a first-team player at the Etihad and ultimately succeeding England number one Joe Hart.
